Drawing Curves

The Curve icon Icon on the Drawing toolbar opens a toolbar to draw B├ęzier curves. B├ęzier curves are defined by a start point and an end point, which are called "anchors". The curvature of the B├ęzier curve is defined by control points ("handles"). Moving a control point changes the shape of the B├ęzier curve.

Control points are only visible in "Edit Points" mode. Control points are represented by circles, anchor points are represented by squares. The start point is a little bit larger than the other anchor points.

B├ęzier curve segments and straight line segments can be joined to form more complex B├ęzier curves. Three different transitions can be applied to join adjacent segments:
